ALC’s Festival of Learning will be held online from Wednesday, 16 February to Saturday, 19 February and provides an opportunity for people to come together in a celebration of education, faith, church-work and theology. The festival will be an ecumenical celebration that includes introductory sessions to the biblical languages, theology, practical and applied theology, Lutheran doctrine and thought and dialogues with the wider church.
Each day there will be a panel discussion about a current issue facing the church, including issues around Christian education and changing ministry contexts, and on the Saturday a Q&A time about ALC. ‘Intro to…’ sessions will provide an introduction to topics that are covered in ALC’s many and varied study options and will give you a taste of whether further study might be for you. Elective sessions will feature a range of guest speakers, and topics include: Deaf ministry in the LCA; Ecotheology; Women and the Australian Church; What happened to all the young people?; My journey as a pastor: What I have learned to do, and not to do; Creating space to hear and receive Indigenous voices—just to name a few.
Attend just one festival session, every time slot available, or anything in between. There are no restrictions—you can participate in any sessions that interest you.
